Naoshima Art Island Break


2 Days, 1 Nights

Naoshima is an island in the Seto Inland Sea and is known for its modern art museums, architecture and sculptures. The island, with its Mediterranean atmosphere, sandy beaches and sunny weather, combined with a laid-back rural feel is a relaxing getaway from Japan’s large urban areas.

Built into the hillside, Chichu Art Museum has paintings from Monet’s “Water Lilies” series. Benesse House Museum shows contemporary sculpture and installations. One of Yayoi Kusama’s iconic pumpkin sculptures stands by Miyanoura Port. On the east coast, the Art House Project is a collection of architectural art pieces.

Much of Naoshima’s art was installed by the Benesse Corporation, which oversees art museums, installations and sculptures both on Naoshima and on neighboring islands. Benesse’s museums were designed by the well-known Japanese architect Ando Tadao and include the Chichu Art Museum, Lee Ufan Museum and all the buildings of the Benesse House. In addition, Naoshima’s municipal buildings and schools were designed by the modern architect Ishii Kazuhiro.
